Instead, Ferrari’s executives and security team admitted the leak to customers. The company explained its refusal to pay for information with its reluctance to indulge criminals and incite them to new cybercrime.
“Accepting such requests will provide funding for criminal activities and allow those who wrote the threats to continue their attacks. We have informed our customers about the possible disclosure of their data and the nature of the incident. Ferrari takes the privacy of its customers very seriously and understands the importance of what happened.”
At the same time, the company assured customers that nothing was threatening, and an investigation was launched into the incident.
